Saturday Morning Movie: A Love Story 20 Years In the Making

Who would have thought, back in the second grade, when these two met, that they were meeting their soul mate right then and there. But that’s exactly what happened and the journey they started on is nothing short of amazing. Some things just make sense, and these two and their friendship which grew to be so much more, is just that, as we learn in this film by Bear Hands Media. They made it official with a celebration planned by Keely Thorne Events and we’re left in awe, with no doubts in the power of fate.

Sail Off Into the Sunset with This Nautical Inspiration Session

Inspired by the picturesque sailboats at Dallas’ White Rock Lake, this incredible team of creatives (including Anna Smith PhotographyJenny McCannCallie ManionChelsea Q. White PhotographyKate Pease, Ben Q. Photography and Allen Tsai Photography) created a nautical dream with ethereal touches throughout. From the two-piece blue wedding dress to the delicious cakes from Sugar Bee Sweets, this inspiration session is almost too good to be true. See it all in The Vault!


From Anna Smith PhotographyOur Haystack Film Gathering community in Dallas is thriving. We have such a great and talented group of photographers that love to get together and collaborate on shoots, sharing ideas, talent and camaraderie unparalleled with other cities. Currently there are about 20 of us and we are growing! For the summer gathering, Anna Smith Photography and Silver Lining Events put on an amazingly gorgeous sunset nautical inspiration shoot at the Dallas White Rock Lake. The inspiration came from the idea to use one of the sailboats at the lake and combine that with a neutral palette of elegant, light and classy hues of blues and greens. The florals used were: cream vendela roses, cream football mums, cream privett flowering, cream peonies, spray roses cream majolica, Nigella blue, Millet green, salad leaf and silver dollar eucalyptus.

The color palette Silver Lining Events used was white, cream, shades of blue and natural greens. We chose an ethereal bridal gown from A and Be Bridal that was a two-piece corset and skirt. The corset had a light blue underlining and accented our style oh-so-well. The groom’s style was impeccable in a white tuxedo from Culwell & Son in Dallas. Vella Nest Floral designed bouquets and centerpieces with bright shades of green and white.

The table designed by Silver Lining Events was decorated with help of ChrysQ Handcrafted hand-dyed linens for a natural seaside look. We scattered sand and seashells throughout. Sugar Bee Sweets provided the two delicious-looking watercolor cakes. Bunny and Bear is my absolute go-to stationery and calligraphy company. She is so talented and created stationery and all the calligraphy with blue, green and white hues to match our floral design. We hope you enjoy this gorgeous collaboration!

From the Bride… We visited countless venues in the Austin Hill Country and the Greenhouse was our last stop, because we chose to look no further. Saving the best for last definitely fit here! We were absolutely stunned by the property, the people and the history of the home that was shared with us. The Greenhouse is magical and we felt honored to share our vows in a place where time seemed to slow down.

During the planning process, I was super intentional with the team I built. It was less about people’s previous experience, but more about the connection I felt with them. I am so incredibly grateful to have collaborated with such amazing people who are passionate about the work they do. I felt inspired by each and every vendor while making decisions and I attribute the beauty of the wedding to their creativity!

The natural color palette and overall aesthetic was inspired by the organic beauty of the venue. I wanted my choices in floral, linens and table arrangements to complement the established greenery that was authentic to the Greenhouse with mixtures of blush, ivory, gray and sage. Each bouquet and table arrangement was handpicked by Clementine’s Christin Armstrong, with a mixture of fragile blooms and strong succulent varieties. My bridesmaids’ blush printed and solid dresses were as unique and romantic as the bouquets they picked to carry. The months of decision making contributed to a seamless and intimate day.

The day of is a whirlwind of beautiful moments delicately strung together that are so vivid in my mind. I remember standing under the tent while the catering company set up with my parents and a couple of my best gals. One dear friend presented me with a small box from Tyler. I wore the beautiful earrings he gifted me down the aisle, but the note he wrote me was the icing on the carrot cake!

We felt so much love for each other on our day and this love continues to grow; being married is fun! We hope your process is filled with as many special moments as our experience was during this amazing time!

From Uptown Events… The Greenhouse at Driftwood is a stunning home-turned-venue with two indoor greenhouses connected to the house itself. It was a dream of mine to work there, and I was over the moon when Jordan and Tyler chose me to coordinate their special day at the extraordinary venue.

Jordan and Tyler were kind, organized and excited about their big day which made them a joy to work with. As the day got closer, I spent more time talking with Jordan and really felt connected to her vision for their wedding day. Earth tones, heavy greenery, and modern lines made up their design, matching up perfectly with the Greenhouse’s relaxed, yet elegant, vibe. Tyler and Jordan were married on the back deck of the house under a large tree and surrounded by their closest friends and family. Their cocktail hour took place on a lush lawn allowing guests to walk around the property and through the greenhouses. The couple and their loved ones danced the night away under a tent filled with sparkling lights and departed for their honeymoon to Costa Rica right after! This wedding was an absolute delight to coordinate, all because of Tyler and Jordan.
